GLUTEX™ GQ1 Sanitizer GLUTEX GQ1 Sanitizer, an effective, fast-acting, broad-spectrum microbiocide specifically targets pathogens that cause deadly animal diseases and helps control microorganisms before they spread. Combining 14% glutaraldehyde with 2.5% quaternary ammonium salt (quat), GLUTEX GQ1 efficiently sanitizes against a broad range of viruses, bacteria, spores and fungi in animal production.

100% Quat Glutaraldehyde

75% 50% 25%

The combination of glutaraldehyde and quat is synergistic and allows for an excellent sanitizer for diverse poultry and livestock applications.

Glutaraldehyde provides a quick rate of kill with improved performance in the presence of organic matter, while the quat works to increase the penetration of glutaraldehyde in the cell. There is a limited number of glutaraldehyde/quat combination products available in the U.S. for this market. GLUTEX GQ1 Sanitizer contains the highest percentage of glutaraldehyde of the glut/quat combination products. The effective combination of these two actives offers improved broad-range performance against products that list quats as the primary active. Quats by themselves suffer from limited efficacy against many viruses, certain Gram-negative bacteria and spores, as well as have a high affinity for negatively charged materials, making them readily deactivated by organic matter.

Key Features, Advantages, and Benefits of GLUTEX GQ1 Sanitizer include: Effectively sanitizes against key pathogens such as Avian Influenza (H5N1 and H6N2) Aspergillus fumigatus Salmonella cholerasuis Pseudomonas aeruginosa SARS Associated Coronavirus Klebsiella pneumoniae Staphylococcus aureus Infectious bursal disease (IBD) Helps reduce contamination on a wide variety of surfaces found in animal production facilities, such as: Stainless steel Aluminum Painted concrete Plastic Glazed tile Internal laboratory testing resulted in low corrosion to metals when applied at end use levels on carbon steel, galvanized steel and Galvaneal steel There is NO formaldehyde in or formaldehyde release from GLUTEX GQ1 Glutaraldehyde is readily biodegradable according to OECD 301A test method Efficacy data is continually being generated for GLUTEX GQ1, including disinfection efficacy. Some of the microorganisms being tested include, but are not limited to, Clostridium perfringens, Escherichia coli, Salmonella enteritidis, Mycoplasma gallisepticum, Pasteurella multocida, Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, Campylobacter jejuni, Haemophilus paragallinarum and Avian laryngotracheitis. NOTICE: No claims to efficacy are intended or are to be implied by the listing of the above pathogens. Information is being provided solely for reference to intended testing.

Frequently Asked Questions: What is the difference between glutaraldehyde and formaldehyde? The Dow Chemical Company has been the leading manufacturer of glutaraldehyde for more than 40 years. Glutaraldehyde is fast-acting and useful against a variety of microorganisms, including a broad spectrum of harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Glutaraldehyde is not classified as a carcinogen; formaldehyde is a Group 1 carcinogenic to humans according to IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer).

How does glutaraldehyde compare to other actives? The chart below compares glutaraldehyde to several other commonly used actives for control of microbes:

Can GLUTEX™ GQ1 be used with existing fogging or foaming equipment? Yes. GLUTEX GQ1 can be applied by spraying, foaming and fogging. For proper use of thermal foggers and misting equipment, and for safe handling guidelines when fogging, please follow the product label, SDS and refer to the application section of dowglutex.com. Is GLUTEX GQ1 Corrosive? The corrosivity of GLUTEX GQ1 is similar to water, when diluted to end use levels, making it preferred to oxidizing agents like peroxymonosulfate and straight quat formulations, which can be highly corrosive. Additionally, in direct comparison with oxidizing agents, GLUTEX GQ1 offers a broader efficacy spectrum, including improved efficacy against spores and enveloped viruses.

How does GLUTEX GQ1 Sanitizer work in truck washes? GLUTEX GQ1 can be applied by spraying or foaming onto tires and wheels on trucks, inside and outside of trailers, cages, polymer floor mats, and undercarraige. As with any sanitizer or disinfectant, remove gross soils, apply a soap, such as General Purpose 1300 Cleaner from Dow Biocides, rinse and dry to achieve best results. Apply GLUTEX GQ1 with a foaming wand or low pressure sprayer (<300 psi) at a rate of ½ to 1 oz per gallon water and allow to sit for a minimum of 5 minutes. Is GLUTEX GQ1 Sanitizer compatible with an alkaline soap cleaning program? Yes. GLUTEX GQ1 can be used as a flow-on biocidal step after cleaning and washing with any conventional neutral pH or non-acidic (alkaline or chlorinated, foaming or non-foaming) soap and cleaner product mix. Dow Biocides offers a complete line of alkaline and acidic cleaners. For best performance, allow drying after cleaning and before applying GLUTEX GQ1.

Additional products include: General Purpose Farm Cleaner 1300 Multipurpose foaming cleaner for manual and automated applications Acid Tray Wash 120 A phosphate-free non-foaming acid cleaner and tray wash to be alternated with alkaline cleaner to cut through residual build-up such as mineral deposits Acid Foam Cleaner 124 A phosphate-free foaming acid cleaner and de-scaler to be alternated with alkaline cleaner to cut through residual build-up such as mineral deposits Alkaline Tray Wash 1434 A phosphate-free non-foaming chlorinated alkaline cleaner and tray wash for use with pressure washers and sprayers Alkaline Foam Cleaner 1418 A phosphate-free foaming chlorinated alkaline cleaner to remove heavy organic soils


GLUTEX™ GQ1 Sanitizer is formulated for use in POULTRY applications, including: Transportation: Truck wheels and tires, catch cages, floor mats, aluminum truck flooring and trailers Flooring and Walls: Breeder, pullet, broiler, layer and turkey houses Hatcheries: Setter rooms, hatchers, egg rooms, hatching trays, racks, chick boxes, equipment, floors, walls and ducts

Methods of Application Spray • After thorough removal of gross soils and cleaning with soap, allow surfaces to dry • Concentrated GLUTEX GQ1 liquid formulation should be diluted and used at concentrations as low as ½ oz per gallon, up to 1 oz per gallon of water. For example, to sanitize a 1,000 sq. ft. area of a hatchery floor, use 6 oz of GLUTEX GQ1 Sanitizer added to 6 gallons of water • Apply to cleaned surfaces at low pressure (<300 psi), paying special attention to cracks, corners, seams, joints and starting at the highest point working down to lowest surfaces Foam • To enhance contact time of GLUTEX GQ1, especially to vertical hatchery surfaces, within floor drains, or onto high surface area materials, create a foam using ½ oz per gallon up to 1 oz per gallon of water • Apply the foam using conventional foam generator or a liquid aerator keeping foam between one to two inches thick • Follow the equipment manufacturer’s specified directions and wear appropriate protective equipment Fogging • Remove poultry and feed from premises, trucks or cages • Wash all surfaces with appropriate cleaner from Dow Biocides, rinse with water and allow to dry • For hatchery rooms: mix 1.8 oz GLUTEX GQ1 per gallon of water and fog at the maximum settings 3.5 gallons diluted GLUTEX GQ1 per 1000 sq. ft. of floor area • For incubators and hatchers: mix 1.8 oz GLUTEX GQ1 per gallon of water and fog at the maximum settings 3.5 gallons diluted GLUTEX GQ1 per 1000 sq. ft. of floor area; repeat daily in setters and twice daily in hatchers, stopping at least 24 hours prior to hatch • Wait at least three hours before re-entry or repopulation of animals after application GLUTEX Sanitizers are sold in 1 gallon, 5 gallon and 55 gallon sizes.
